Nihal Arthanyake is to take over the mid-morning phone-in show on the BBC’s Asian Network.
Crossfire’s good mate Nihal, who already co-presents a weekly Asian music show on Radio 1, also presents the Asian Network’s weekly football show.
On his new job, he said:
“People know me primarily as a music person but I take great interest in issues that affect the Asian community in the 21st century. The phone-in really gets under the skin of what British Asians are thinking and how that affects what it’s like to live in Britain for everybody”.
Z-Ed says “Good on him for his positive attitude …but unfortunately he is still a Tottenham supporter underneath it all! Expect the Asian Gooner Collective to be spending a fortune on phone bills!”
